Wheels Up partners with Peloton to offer new member benefits

Wheels Up, a membership-based private aviation company, has announced a new partnership with fitness industry-focused tech company Peloton, the company said.

Through February and March 2017, new Wheels Up Members will be gifted a Peloton bike, as well as a one-year subscription to the extensive library of live and on-demand Peloton classes. All existing Wheels Up Members will also have the opportunity to engage in this partnership through additional on-going benefits.

Peloton´s technology creates an engaging, studio fitness experience in the home, bringing all the benefits of a group indoor cycling class to riders in a private and convenient way. Through the 22″ HD touchscreen, riders can join live classes or select from an entire library of on-demand classes led by elite Peloton instructors, as well as track their progress and compete against other riders on the real-time leaderboard.

Wheels Up is a membership-based private aviation company that significantly reduces the upfront costs to fly privately, while providing unparalleled flexibility, service and safety. The company offers guaranteed availability to its private fleet of new Beechcraft King Air 350i and Citation Excel/XLS aircraft to individual, family and corporate members.

With the Wheels Up mobile app, members can seamlessly book flights, manage their accounts, participate in ride-share opportunities and select Hot Flights, a vast selection of one-way “empty leg” flights that are posted daily to the app and updated in real time. Members also have access to Wheels Down, a program featuring exclusive events and experiences, unique partner benefits and a full-service luxury concierge.

Wheels Up acts as agent for the Wheels Up members, and is not the operator of the program aircraft. Air carriers participating in the program exercise full operational control of the program aircraft. Any aircraft owned or leased by Wheels Up are dry leased to the operating air carrier to facilitate operations by that carrier.
